The YEP with Sri Lanka had 12 cadets selected from across India.

 

Sharing her experience Medhavi said, “It was such a proud moment to have represented my country at such a platform. It was a great confidence booster and was an excellent exercise in shaping our interpersonal and communication skills.”
